Policies, Procedures & Protocols
By law through the Occupational Health & Safety Act (OHSA), it requires employers to prepare and review at least annually a written health and safety policy as well as create and maintain a program to implement those policies to maintain compliance.
Although extremely important OH&S (Occupational Health & Safety) policies, procedures and protocols are one of the key compliance elements often overlooked or pushed aside due to real obstacles such as: not knowing where to start, time constraints or lack of in-house resources.

Documentation is a MUST and we are excellent with designing user friendly forms that match your industry and worksite flow and keep you informed about safety blitzes and compliance.
We can draft your first or new OH&S (Occupational Health & Safety) manual and handbooks or update your existing safety program.
